I'm passionate about science communications and talking about career advice for young scientists. Below are features in the media and guest blog interviews that I've written on these topics.
I was featured in the journal Nature in January, 2017, as a science advocacy ambassador. As the threat of cuts to science funding sweeps the globe, I talk about encouraging scientists to advocate for their research. I also discuss the inspiration behind the Twitter science party account @SciParty and how it's giving scientists the opportunity to talk about science and improve their communications outreach.
ASCB has a blog series called "Career Perspectives" that highlights the different careers available for scientists. They asked me to write about my transition from research into a career in science communications at CIRM. I talk about the application process, my current role as a website and social media manager and advice for how to get a job in science communications.
I wrote a guest blog about my career path as a scientist and science communicator for Soph Talks Science, a blog written by a stem cell PhD student in the UK. She features scientists from around the world who are passionate about communicating science and research.
PhD Over Easy is a group of post-PhD biomedical scientists who are navigating the biomedical career landscape. They are helping others like themselves move forward in their careers by providing testimonials, advice, and resources. I wrote a guest blog for them talking about my transition from bench science to a job in science communications. I also talk about my current role as the website and social media manager at the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
